If your after some speakers that will sound good and not break the bank, one brand that comes to mind is Philips. You could pick up a set of their 2 or 3 way 6.5" and 3 way 6x9's plus installation for around $400. Professional installation should cost around $80 for the 6x9's and about $60 for the 6.5". They also have some nice 8" 3-ways that can be a good alternative to the 6x9's. In my opinion, Philips speakers are often overlooked but they really do sound good (I've installed quite a few sets). They have a balanced sound and can also handle a bit of bass.
If you shop around there will be quite a few brands that will have speakers in your price bracket. There are always the usual Pioneer, Kenwood and Sony. Also look at the more 'exclusive' brands that often have a bit more to offer. To give you an idea of some brands..... Infinity, MTX, Alpine, Rockford Fosgate, Orion, Cerwin Vega and Clarion.
